A 27-year-old Palestinian man was shot and killed by Israeli forces in Halhul, near Hebron in the West Bank, the Palestinian Authority Health Ministry says.
The Israeli army does not immediately respond to a request for comment. In a video from the scene, soldiers can be seen arresting a Palestinian suspect — identified by a prisoners’ group as Majdi Abu Yousef — in Halhul.

Palestinian health officials say three other Palestinians were rushed to Al-Ahli Hospital in Hebron after being struck by live fire. Another two were wounded with rubber bullets, according to the PA Health Ministry.
According to the PA, 62 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces in the West Bank and East Jerusalem so far this year. The tally includes many killed while committing violent terror attacks or participating in clashes with Israeli forces. Others appear to have bystanders who were not involved in hostilities.
